On a rare Sunday when not working in The Terrace, Keith Petite our Food and Beverage Service Manager, was relaxing with his family and watching TV, when an advert for The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning caught his attention. The following day he proposed that all The Lensbury staff get behind this charity initiative. With 9 days to go Keith and Luke Perich, business systems coordinator, galvanised all staff to come up with ideas on how to make The Lensbury Coffee Morning a generous success for Macmillan Cancer support.
From canvassing suppliers for prizes and creating a great Coffee Morning, our first year taking part in The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, was a great success. Every department contributed prizes and their time. It was great to see how enthusiastic all teams were in making sure it was a really special day.
Thank you to all our members, guests and Lensbury staff who purchased tickets and supported this charity event on Friday September 27, 2013.
This year’s coffee morning and raffle ticket sales helped to raise £1000, all proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Fundraising Manger for West London, Lindsey Cape (pictured) who come to The Lensbury to accept our donation said “The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has grown into the 3rd largest fundraising event in the UK with over 150,000 organisations and individuals taking part this year. These fantastic events all over the country help Macmillan in our mission to ensure that no one face’s cancer alone. Thank you to The Lensbury Club and its members for taking part in The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Support.”
Congratulations to the 31 lucky winners, who were selected at random by members of The Food and Beverage team. Prizes were as diverse as a hamper of fresh organic meat to a luxury weekend away. Below is a full list of the prizes:
